The DYE Ultralite barrel is a popular favorite of the top pros today. The Ultralite is chosen for its all aluminum light weight advantage. It is also a very popular custom barrel because its aluminum construction offers the ability to be anodized to match any gun color. It is made with the same precision quality that you can expect from DYE as the leader in barrel manufacturing.
The Dye Ultralite 2-Piece is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
This is in my opinion the best solo barrel on the market. there may be others that can match it, but it can't be beat. it is as accurate as possible, because afterall, you are shooting a gelatin ball filled with goo. it is one of the quieter barrels, it is as light as possible while maintaining durability, and is just simple and top notch.
If you need a new barrel and don't want to deal with a kit, this is a great option. 10/10 for being speedy's barrel of choice =)

This is a very excellent barrel that shoots through breaks just as well as a ceramic, ported or any other barrel that claims to clean itself. but when I first got the front and the back the threads didnt match up and i had to run down to a local shop and get a new front because the threads on either the front or the back of the barrel were to shallow and didnt thread. I dont know if dye knows about this problem or what because my friend had the exact same thing happen w/ his ultralight. This is a excellent barrel good accuracy, and no stray paintballs.
This barrel is the best i have ever shot and if you can afford it it is well worth the money.

When i First tried this barrel with my orracle i was very impressed with the looks and the performance of the barrel. The accuracy was amazing and the groups were very small. Even though Autocockers are very accurate anyway and this barrel made it even more accurate. The Two piece system also make it alot easier to clean also. I love my Ultralite!
I reccomend this barrel to anyone with an autococker who wants to improve their guns accuracy and want to have a drop dead awesome barrel... TOP MARKS

ive used spank tork(too brittle at high spped and ultralite) primer chronic x-ball bronze blue streek (1nce needed paint really bad) couzins paint middnight blaze and thats pretty much it i think?
Get get get get get this barrel. if any1 tells u to get freak do ur research and u will find that this is way better but dont use crap paint in this barel. if your trying to get in tournies or just get more accurate its great im starting to play in tournies now and i love it. i wouldnt want to use another barrel but maybe the redz or lucky 15 but i never tried them cause im saving for dynasty and i have no job. no job=no money. but its great for the money if u buy a set it will be just as mmch as the ultralite with all backs so just get this u will be glad u did. just trust me
I love it but i cant give it a ten but i would love to give it a 9.7 ca use the only thing is if u use bad paint or old paint it breaks like most barrels and alsoit only comes with 3 bore izes but makes up with its accuracy lightness and quite ness

Accurate, Fairly good price, and a 2 piece barrel.
This barrel is the best barrel I have ever used. It is accurate and has barrel inserts, bit you have to buy them. It is not too expensive, many people use it, accurate, and it is made by the best manufacturer in paintball...Dye! It comes in my favorite color and it maches my gun..Black. Get it, Get it, get it, get it. M"KAY
I love this barrel. You should get it. It is just as accurate than those $200.00 barrels for half the price! If it is too expensive for you, you shouldn't play paintball.
I just used this barrel about an hour and a half ago and let me tell you.....BEST BARREL I HAVE EVER OWNED!!!!! I was using it on my 2004 BKO and I was getting ball on ball accuracy. And to even test out the accuracy of it, I unscrewed it and used the back of the barrel. Same accuracy. I couldnt believe it. I was shooting at a target I had set up about a good 75 feet away and I was hitting them on top of each other every time.
I was using Draxxus Game Face Scorch paintballs (Only size that would fit my barrel) and I couldnt believe that such a cheap paint worked so great. These paintballs say they are .684 and they are truly about a .683-.682.
I would definately recomend this barrel to anyone looking to upgrade. Its light and very accurate.
Dye boomstick, J & J ceramic, Freak, Kanor...J and J pretty much same weight not in same league tho, Boomstick same accuracy but a bit heavier and a bit more durable-extra $$$... Freak probably better and a better deal for kit maybe not as quiet but definutely as accurate, kanor basically same as freak i'd say a bit quieter

Might i add it sounds louder than a colt 45!
I'd reccomend medium sized paintballs(not too big-not too small). This thing shoots well with most stuff tho. Whatever you do don't go for brass eagle paint>if you don't beleive me check their ratings.

PROS: This barrel is very good probably one of the top three available. You can get it to fit nearly every gun and can get it in a variety of colors. The barrel suits any gun and it cool looking. Of course, the first thing you are looking for in a barrel is accuracy and this barrel has it. Another major thing about the barrel is how quiet it makes your gun. I hooked this up to my 2002 WGP and it was so loud with the stock barrel. It took the sound down from a boom to a dull clap. The barrel is very light hence the name ULTRA-LIGHT though there are lighter barels out there, though none of them probably have everything in one package. This has got everything you need. It is quality.
CONS: When i got the barrel the first time I was a bit pissed off because right where the two barrel peices screw together there was a chip. I dont know what it was caused by but basically on the front barrel a bit of the edge had been hit on somthing and the barrel had a small triangle of metal sticking up in the middle maybe 1 1/2 mm tall. That isn't so much but it completely messed up the entire shooting It broke 3 in 5 balls. That is just an error of the company but it shows that the barrels do have weakness. Although this thing had been hit hard it still annoyed me that it could bend. Apart from that and cleaning out all the little sound reducing holes of paint, there is nothing wrong with this baby.
Get it, its got everything you need it reduces the sound of the gun, doesn't break balls (unless bent inside), looks good, is light, and most importantly is accurate. The durability bit is not such a big deal because it obviously took a lot of force to do that and paintball players respect there guns. SO BUY IT!!! 10 out of 10 cause i love it and anyone who gets it will.
Whisper barrel- quieter but not anywhere near as good

Evils my favorite.
not as accurate as boomstick
I got this barrel when I had my spyder. It improved accuracy immensely I loved it. I knew it was gonna be light when I got it but wow this thing is light. I got an adapter for my cocker So I can use the spyder barrel on it. Thank god, I was almost about to spend $100 yet again to get this thing. It has proved a great barrel once again on my new gun. This is my favorite barrel.
This is a great barrel for any gun get this barrel right now. (Unless you have the freak set then just keep that).
10 out of 10

All American, many stock barrels, freak, progressive, lucky 15, (none as good as ultralite.)
2004 pimpin freestyle blue/black, smoke Halo B w/rip drive, smart parts air on/off, custom products reg, dye ultralite barrel, crossfire 70/45 low pressure peanut tank.
Paintballs that fit well and can be blown out of the barrel. (not ones that roll out.) Evil, Marbillizer, Hellfire, Rec sport, many more.
Light, accurate, sexy, durable.
None that i have found
I have recently purchased this barrel for my 04 cocker. It has proven itself to be an accurate, durable, and very light barrel. Luckily when I purchased my freestyle it had cocker barrel threads so I continue to use it. It shoots far and accurate (if paint matches barrel well.) This is a very high quality barrel and should be treated with respect.
I would definetaly buy this barrel is a new one is needed. It is very acurate, best barrel out there. Better than a plain freak, or boomstick. The boomstick is just made out of different metal than the ultralite. Ultralite is lighter too.
2003 wgp vert feed
91 ci 4500 bulldog
Marbs, Evils, and Empire paintballs will work wonders
draxxus midnights pretty good
competitive edge shoot alright
menace work well
Fits most kinds of paintballs well
Easy to aim along
Very smooth bored
Mine is tight bored and it will chop swelled paintballs
none other than that
I bought this barrel because my stock barrel on my cocker shot like crap. I bought a 10 inch 2 piece ultralight off ebay for $50 dollars, brand new. I did a science expirament for school on co2 vs. nitrogen and i was going to see which was more accurite. I couldnt get either to make a difference it shot perfect. It shot tight about as big as a fist.
This barrel will work great with most paintballs. (except seconds) You should get this barrel because it is very accurite and with my 10 inch it shoots better than most of my friends barrels. With cheap paint it will shoot reasonable, but with marbs or evlls it will shoot darts. This barrel will kick butt for you and your gun. Go get on ebay and get one now!!!
